Blue vintage shoes
From the dainty and simple to the bold and elaborate, women have loved shoes in many different shapes, styles and colors — as these pictures attest!
Take a look at nine different Victorian shoe drawings from the book Ladies’ Dress Shoes of the Nineteenth Century by T. Watson Greig, which was published in 1900.
Shoes shown, from top:
- Shoe of silver brocade
